To FERD or not to FERD, That is the Question!
Our new Power Schottky & FERD eTool is the first solution in the industry to perform power losses calculations to ensure engineers know what to choose between a Schottky and a Field Effect Rectifier Diode (FERD). Teams working on a Switched-Mode Power Supply can thus have the assurance that they are choosing the right part number for their designs. FERDs are increasingly popular, but they don’t necessarily fit every system. The tool is thus the best way to know what component will offer the best performance in a particular PCB.
